who will become the more populous candidate? george w. bush startled both of those in 2000 mike huckabee and rick santorum were the more popular in 2012. but we have seen people like christie and k-6 -- kasich and bush, they have spent more time in new hampshire. so i wonder whether iowa will see more of a fight between the populous candidate rather than the establishment candidate. stacey: who needs to win here? dennis: the caucuses are all about expectation. not as well is expected? dennis: right now expectations are up for ted cruz, so i think he needs to do well here. i think he needs to do first or almost a tie with trump if he continues on that way. and ted cruz has a firewall among southern states, everything is moving south after new hampshire. he is paying attention to them. i think that ted cruz needs to win here. and i think the question for rubio is there a state where he can win? on the democratic side, particularly with memories of 2008, hillary clinton needs to win. she had the organizational strength this time. if she does not win in iowa, she is a damaged candid
